The Business as Mission Conference has been serving business people, academics, students, mission agencies and churches for the past 8 years. We are motivated by the call to live for Christ and follow him in business. We have seen firsthand that companies can do incredible good, bringing spiritual, economic, social and environmental transformation to communities around the world. We understand the power of networking to inspire new initiatives for God’s glory and for his Kingdom. Come and join us this year!
We decided to dedicate the next Zermatt Summit to humanising capital to stimulate innovation.
Human beings only change when there is a crisis or when there are personal interests involved, so it is time we as a society look at how we succeed to transform our same society.
Our very lifestyle is likely to undermine the chances that future generations will be able to lead worthwhile lives and have their primary needs met. The economic production model that we currently have does not work. What is required of us, however, is to make a mental leap as well as a behavioral change, to disrupt our thinking about production so as to enter a circular, regenerative, environmentalist dynamic. It is morally necessary for us as individuals and for business to take care of our planet and it’s people.
In this year’s edition the Zermatt Summit wants to show possible paths that we can take towards regenerative growth by describing trends and scenarios that are difficult to interpret, making them visible, understandable, accessible and promising. The focus will be to put back the human person at the center of innovation in technology, food and energy. An economic revolution inspired by nature is under- way. There is no more powerful force to drive innovation and change than human enterprise.
The Zermatt Summit is a unique opportunity to meet and spend time with likeminded people from all over the world, each and everyone with a special story to tell. The attendees, ranging from businessmen, policymakers, to entrepreneurs and environmental economists, will share with you innova- tive ways of thought, progressive and inspiring stories, as well as experiences that show that the time to act can be and is now.
All projects proposed and explained give you in- sights in techniques that are practical, applicable, usable and implementable from day one. Taking place in the exclusive mountain village of Zermatt, surrounded by nature, nested deep into the Swiss Alps. There are moments planned to stretch your legs, go outside to focus on the future full of possibilities and forget day to day stress.
